With more than 800,000 people in the United States alone suffering from a stroke or traumatic brain injury every year, there are countless still waiting to be treated. The social problem we strive to solve involves aiding and expediting individual’s recovery from a stroke, brain injury, or other neurodegenerative diseases. Patients spend 30 to 60 minutes a day in formal therapy at a clinic. For a lot of patients, physical therapy can be boring, exercises are done mindlessly, and sometimes they don't feel much progress being made. They are not utilizing their full brain potential to form, reorganize, and rebuild neurological pathways. Research shows that the more time a patient dedicates to therapy with functional goals in mind, the stronger the synapses and faster re-organization of the brain can be achieved.
Neuro Rehab VR provides a new engaging and innovative solution by immersing the patient in various therapy VR 3D exercises to stimulate their brain and help form new neural pathways to aid in recovery. Our mission is to provide the most efficient, enjoyable, and cost-effective care to people who need physical therapy and neurological rehabilitation. We have developed several virtual reality therapy exercises that have been tested by more than 70 patients and have become a part of the daily therapy plans created by therapists. We have also developed a data analytics and reporting system that records and generates reports on the progress made by the patients. Our solution creates immense value for the medical facility and for the patient during therapy. Not only do we see patient satisfaction and engagement, but therapists have observed faster functional improvements over time since integrating our technology into their therapy plans. Our streamlined user interface system is easy and intuitive for Therapists and Patients alike including features that present quantifiable data of progress as well as an automatic generated report summary for therapist’s logs.
With our machine learning algorithms we can tailor each program to a patient's specific therapy needs and ability, so that they receive the most efficient care possible
Insurance and reimbursement for care.
Neuro Rehab VR technology and programs can best be utilized in physical therapy settings, including but not limited to: Physical Therapy Recovery Centers & Clinics, Hospitals, Senior Care Living Centers. But the biggest impact is for the patient itself to help them get to functional independence
